Insurance companies can customize rates to a driver’s real driving behaviour by using telematics and gathering this kind of data, which provides insights into the driver’s behaviours and permits a dynamic risk assessment. Based on this study, premiums are modified to promote fairer pricing that accurately represents risk, as opposed to standard insurance techniques that take age and gender into account as broad demographic data. By rewarding drivers who drive responsibly with reduced rates, the intention is to encourage safer driving practices. Because UBI is personalized, it is possible to customize insurance coverage for people based on their driving behaviours. UBI provides cost savings. It promotes safer driving practices, lowering accident rates and raising road safety standards.

Advancement in Market

For eC3 consumers, Citroen India and ICICI Lombard General Insurance unveiled the novel and distinctive usage-based insurance (UBI). Through this programme, consumers who practise safe driving will receive discounts on their insurance premiums. The UBI programme is linked to the vehicle’s use and the driver’s driving habits during the insurance term. The insurance company evaluates the driving scores and uses that information to compute the renewal premium. Real-time vehicle/driving dynamics data collection is permitted with the consumer’s consent. After that, this calculates the owner’s unique renewal premium and score drivers.

Market Dynamics

Driver: Growing knowledge regarding usage-based insurance.

The demand for usage-based insurance (UBI) is rising due to consumer awareness and education. Insurers are actively promoting usage-based insurance plans to customers and emphasizing their advantages. They emphasise the benefits of safe driving and how it may result in financial savings, which strengthens the case for usage-based insurance among customers as opposed to traditional insurance. The expansion of the market is facilitated by the streamlined procedure and improved availability of usage-based insurance. Thus, the market will rise due to increased knowledge of usage-based insurance.

Restraints: The difficulty in determining the UBI.

The market’s expansion will be hampered by the intricacy of UBI models and its reliance on cutting-edge telematics technologies. Customers choose the simpler traditional usage-based insurance because they are unaware of it or find it difficult to explain how it operates. Data accuracy and reliability are a worry, given our reliance on technology. Telematics devices are susceptible to technical issues or malfunctions, and environmental conditions that alter GPS signals might introduce mistakes when measuring driving behaviours. Privacy concerns also contribute to consumers’ mistrust of telematics and data collection. The development and uptake of usage-based insurance in the market are further restricted by concerns about insurers’ transparency and handling of this private data.

Opportunities: Technological Progress.

Technological developments in telematics and data-driven insights are driving the global expansion of the usage-based insurance sector. Implementing UBI in the market is propelled by the development of efficient processes made possible by telematics, improving user experiences. Furthermore, telematics supports environmentally friendly activities by tracking fuel efficiency and motivating drivers to improve their driving practices to attain or maintain fuel economy. The heightened emphasis on sustainability corresponds with customer inclinations towards eco-friendly practices, promoting further technological progress in the industry.

Challenges: Regulatory guidelines.

The diverse nature of data protection and privacy laws across regions leads to mismatch and overlapping of regulation regarding insurance coverage. Navigating such complex procedures is difficult for insurance providers and users to understand. Obtaining regulatory approval for UBI programs can be time-consuming. Achieving standardization in UBI regulations is another significant market growth challenge.
